Hey, this is my friend Agent 0311's Volvo station wagon. Restored from a derelict field car over the last three years, off and on. A really fun car to drive, and should last a lifetime, unlike today's shit cars. These are rugged, honest cars with lots of charm and a great roar from the un-silenced twin SU carbs. High quality Bosch electrics and ZF steering box components are part of the reason these cars were so tough; most of the front end parts were still in perfect condition and were not replaced. This early Amazon still runs drum brakes all around, and charging is handled by generator. No upgrades were done to the car. The tires were sourced to match the original spare, still in the back. Hope you enjoyed looking at and listening to this great old car!

1967 Volvo 122S for Sale (Drive By and Test Drive)
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1967-volvo-122/ to see this fun sporty
1967 Volvo 122S for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis Minnesota.
The previous owner was a real racing fanatic. He learned to build engines
and adjust a cars suspension and engine for maximum handling. This car
spent 18 years in Oregon with the previous owner, and although it was never
raced on a track, it was built for speed and handling.
The current owner is also a loving car enthusiast. The engine, suspension
and paint were all nice when the current owner bought the car in 2011, but
even so he continued to make improvements on the car. The stainless steel
Exhaust is one of the more notable
additions the car received since it found a new home here in Minnesota.
This '67 Volvo is the sixth car I've listed for the current seller. So
don't let the short ownership make you think this car is not loved and
appreciated like crazy. The seller is aiming toward owning 100 cars during
his lifetime, and since he doesn't own more than one or two at a time it's
time this Volvo moved on to a new, lucky owner. Even though the car must
move on, the seller mentioned this Volvo is tied for first in the
For the past two decades, this car has been blessed with very caring
owners. As a result this car runs, handles and responds as if it is giving
thanks for all the love and attention it has received. The front and rear
weight distribution is nearly even, the car is light relative to horsepower, and the
suspension has been lowered by about two inches and fitted with new tires
and shocks. So this 1967 Volvo 122S is about as fun to drive as any sports
car out there for sale today.
Take a look at the full specs at the link above as well as two detailed
photo galleries and more video. Give me a call to get your hands on this
fun sports car!
Thanks for watching - enjoy the drive by and test drive video and leave a
nice big thumbs up and a Like on this Volvo 122S.
Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler Newport: What's Your Carbon Footprint?
Hi! Time to put the 1972 Chrysler Newport Royal 4 door hardtop into storage
before it gets completely buried. First we gotta get it started. These
babies will leave a big black soot mark wherever you start them, until the
choke heats up and pulls off. I love this car, it drives really well, and
it has been very reliable on long highway trips. I bought this car 10 years
ago to save it from the derby and replaced the front subframe due to rust.
A well maintained car, only two previous owners, mostly original in & out.
Thanks for checking it out.
Cold Start the 1971 Citroen DS 21 Safari!
Cold War Motors just bought this great old Citroen DS. It's a bit tatty and
will need a restoration (as soon as I'm finished my other one!), but still
runs and drives nicely. These old Cits are a bit grumpy in the cold, and
this one hasn't been on the road for a while now, so the battery was pretty
tired. I hooked up some cables to a better battery to see if we could get
her running for a last little drive before it gets put into storage. I just
love these cars, and I wanted a break (wagon) to go with my sedan. This one
is a standard shift with power steering and brakes. Looks like Stella
wants to go for a ride, too!
Real Drivers: Volvo 122 Amazon
See more at http://hittingredline.com/ .
This was an film that I had meant to do in the fall of 2011, but ran out of
time for and pushed back to spring. Jonathan Bigelow's 1966 Volvo Amazon
has an interesting story that is even more fascinating to hear in full;
between its construction and now, it has crossed a number of borders, first
from Sweden to Norway, and then from Norway to the United States - and all
in one family.
For those of you who are particular, the irritating leaf blower cuts out at

By Request: Cold Start the 1972 Chrysler!
Hi! Time to put the '72 'Port away for winter. It's been sitting outside
for months; will it start? It's snowed in pretty good...
This old Chrysler has been a pretty good car for the last 10+ years. It's
a low-end 4 door hardtop with very few options. Never gives any trouble and
holds lots of friends!
A 400 c.i. 2 barrel with a 727 Torqueflite auto. Nothing special, but a
fun car from the age of dinosaurs...
Thanks everyone for watching this stuff, and for subscribing!
Cheers from Canada.
1953 Packard Saved From the Crusher!
Hi! This time we're going to give this old Packard Clipper a home so it
doesn't get melted down and made into 7 or 8 Yarii. This old girl has seen
way better days, but I wanted one for the CWMC used-car lot to class the
place up a bit. Thanks for joining us as we take a little look around this
straight-8-powered beauty. It's equipped with the Ultramatic transmission,
Packard's own automatic. No power steering in this one, though! This car
was originally a light grey with a black top and grey interior. At some
point it seems like it was repaired after an accident on the left front
corner and repainted this green with a white top.
I'm not sure what to do with this Packard, but I just wanted it anyway.
Maybe we'll try sometime to get it going again? Let us know what you think.
Thanks for watching this stuff; I enjoy sharing these junkyard gems with
you. Please subscribe to the coldwarmotors channel if you like this kind of

Will it Run? Episode 18: 1959 Chevy Biscayne! Part 1 of 3
Welcome back for another episode of our show about salvaging junk and
getting it to run just for the hell of it. This time it's a 1959 Biscayne 4
door sedan. It is in pretty rough shape after sitting around outside since
1971 or so. Pretty much everything is ruined, but I still think it would be
cool to see it moving around under its own steam again.
Join us as we try to make this old Chev go and tidy it up just enough to
look presentable while preserving the "farmyard" character of the car.
